4 MAPP Phases Organizing Visioning Assessments Strategic Issues Goals/Strategies Action Cycle What is a CHA and CHIP? Local Health Departments are required to regularly and systematically collect, assemble, analyze, and make available information on the health of their community. What is a Community Health Assessment, and Improvement Plan? A locally based initiative Identifies local factors causing health concerns Recognizes community assets and resources Addresses local health priorities Linked to state and national priorities Mobilizes community resources to improve the health of residents Who is here? Representatives of the community Leaders with knowledge of the community Individuals interested and committed to creating a healthier community Why do a community health assessment and an improvement plan?

5 MAPP Phases Organizing Visioning Assessments Strategic Issues Goals/Strategies Action Cycle The Collaborative Process Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) The Health Department decided to base our Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan on the national model which consists of six phases: Organizing: Preparing for the process and inviting members to participate Visioning: After group is assembled, determine a shared vision and mission Assessments: Assess data and analyze results Strategic Issues: Identify top concerns as identified by various data sources Goals/Strategies: Develop goals related to mission and strategic issues Action Cycle: Ongoing cycle of Planning for Action, Implementation and Evaluation Florence County Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan Committee Participants Facilitators: Angela Nimsgern...

6 The Collaborative Process Organizing September 11, Representatives from the Northern Regional Office (NRO) met with Florence County Health Department staff to discuss the Community Health Assessment process and do a preliminary review of data. September 15-17, Potential participants from many sectors of the community identified. Agendas and materials sent. October 2, Twenty-three participants attended Data in a Day Community Health Assessment meeting led by Northern Regional Health Department facilitators, Jim Lawrence and Angela Nimsgern to discuss data from twelve Healthiest Wisconsin 2020 focus areas. The group of 23 participants representing different sectors of the community reviewed data complied from multiple sources, including the Youth Behavioral Risk Survey (YBRS), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Wisconsin Department of Justice, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, and The Burden Of Excessive Alcohol Use in Wisconsin - University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. In addition, results of a local Health Florence County survey were considered. November 19, committee members met to discuss results of Data in a Day, identify themes and create subcommittees to work on future goals and strategies. Round Robin discussion at CHIP meeting on November 19, Visioning The group agreed that the Florence County CHIP will be guided by the same vision and goals statements as the state health improvement plan, Healthiest Wisconsin Healthiest Wisconsin 2020 Vision and Goals: Vision: Everyone Living Better, Longer Goals: Improve health across the life span Eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity 6

7 Socio-Economic and Demographic Overview In order to better understand the make-up of our community and identify possible contributing factors to health disparities, Corrin Seaman, Community Development Agent for UW-Extension presented demographic information. Florence County, a rural county in Northeast Wisconsin, has a long history of excellent relationships among community partners collaborating to offer a much broader range of services than any individual, department, or group could provide on its own. However, we face substantial challenges including high rates of poverty and lack of access to general healthcare and mental health care providers. The health department staff consists of three Registered Nurses, and an administrative assistant serving an area of 495 square miles and a population of roughly 4,400, according to the 2010 Census, the second smallest population of 72 counties in Wisconsin. Florence is one of only two counties in the State of Wisconsin with no incorporated cities or villages. Over 50% of children attending Florence Schools are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (see page 8), a significant indicator of general economic status for the county because families must be at or below 185% Federal Poverty Level (FPL) to qualify. Health Disparities and Inequalities According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), health disparities are differences in health outcomes between groups that reflect social inequalities. Since the 1980s, our nation has made substantial progress in improving residents health and reducing health disparities, but ongoing racial/ethnic, economic, and other social disparities in health are both unacceptable and correctable. Our sizeable low- to moderately-low-income (less than 200% FPL*) population is prone to poorer health outcomes. Research has linked race and ethnicity to inequitable health outcomes. However, Florence County has very little diversity, therefore this is not an area we intend to address specifically. Florence County Population by Race & Ethnicity Unlikely to be major factors affecting health equity in our county Sources: 2000 Census of Population and Housing, SF1; 2010 Census of Population and Housing, PL data. 7 7

9 County Demographics Florence County is often referred to as a retirement community, with many residents over age 60 and fewer young people. The aging population trend has been established over the past ten years and is expected to continue into the future. Related to this, we have a high proportion of disabled residents when compared to the state (see below). An aging population is also a consideration in overall health outcomes.

Disabled Persons by Age Group High rate of disabled persons compared to state Source: American Community Survey 5-year Estimates dataset 9

10 Florence County Health Department Alcohol and Drug Use Healthiest Wisconsin 2020 Focus Areas Alcohol and Drug Use Mental Health Chronic Disease Prevention and Management Tobacco Use and Exposure Injury and Violence Prevention Healthy Growth and Development Physical Activity Reproductive and Sexual Health Environmental and Occupational Health Nutrition and Healthy Foods Communicable Diseases Oral Health Source: Black PD, Paltzer JT. The Burden Of Excessive Alcohol Use in Wisconsin. University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, February 2013 Why these? Twelve health focus areas identified in a twoyear, science-based, state-wide effort culminating with the state health plan Healthiest Wisconsin Inter-sector and interdisciplinary workgroup involving almost 200 public health, medical and academic experts Reflect the underlying causes of hundreds of diseases and health conditions that affect the people of Wisconsin Source: Black PD, Paltzer JT. The Burden Of Excessive Alcohol Use in Wisconsin. University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, February 2013 COMMITMENT COLLABORATION COMPASSION 10

11 Alcohol and Drug Use Wisconsin alcohol use and binge drinking rates have been higher than the United States average for most of the past 15 years. Florence High School data from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YBRS) showed more prevalent alcohol use and binge drinking behavior among high school students than the state, with 52% of students reporting at least one drink in the past 30 days and 34% reporting binge drinking in the past 30 days. The YBRS results were a major factor in the group choosing Alcohol & Drug Use as a Community Health Improvement Plan priority focus area. Underage Drinking Rates Underage Binge Drinking 11

12 Alcohol and Drug Use Lowering the legal blood alcohol limit appears to have helped reduce motor vehicle accidents overall, however Florence continues to have a higher rate of alcohol-related crashes compared to the state and region. Data in a Day participants were concerned about YBRS results in many areas, but prescription drug use was of particular concern. Prescription Drug Misuse 12

13 Chronic Disease The data shows a decrease in deaths from heart disease, stroke, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and lung cancer in the state and region, but a strong increase in stroke and COPD in Florence County. This could be due to the fact that we are a retirement community with an aging population more prone to these conditions. Heart Disease Although incidence has gone down overall, Florence s rate of heart disease as primary cause of death is higher than the state and Northern region. Stroke Primary cause of death listed as stroke has gone down in the region and state, but Florence s rate of stroke as primary cause of death has nearly doubled in that same time. Source: Wisconsin Department of Health Services 13

14 Chronic Disease COPD Primary cause of death listed as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease has remained steady in the region and state, but Florence s rate of COPD as primary cause of death has more than doubled in that same time. Lung Cancer Primary cause of death listed as Lung Cancer has dropped overall in the state, and although Florence s rate of lung cancer as primary cause of death dropped significantly, it still remains higher than the state and region. Source: Wisconsin Department of Health Services 14

15 Communicable Disease Law requires providers to notify the local health department whenever they suspect or diagnose any of over 100 reportable communicable diseases. The health department is required to provide surveillance and follow-up. Sharp increase in Lyme disease and Hepatitis C in 2013 Source: WEDDS Source: WEDDS 15

16 Environmental Health The state of Wisconsin has a 22% infectivity rate in deer ticks, creating a high risk of Lyme transmission, particularly in some Northern counties, including Florence. Five to ten percent of homes in Wisconsin have a radon level above the recommended level of less than 4 picocuries per liter of air. 16

17 Healthy Growth & Development Prenatal Care in the First Trimester High percentage of Florence County mothers receive care Overweight WIC children Florence County rates similar to state and nation 17

18 Injury & Violence Prevention 18

19 Mental Health The Human Services Department (HSD) and the Sheriff s department are the two agencies in the county that deal with emergency mental health situations. In 2014, HSD dealt with 27 contacts. Sixteen were diverted, which means they were able to create a safety plan or deemed safe to return to the community. Eleven were hospitalized. According to HSD and the Sheriff s Department, there were two completed suicides in Florence County in Contacts Diverted Hospitalized Youth Age 22 and younger Adults TOTAL Although Florence County suicide and mental health numbers are similar to the rest of the state, participants in the CHA felt strongly that lack of awareness of mental health services and the barriers to care (e.g. closest Medicaid provider is 25 miles away in Marinette county, private providers in Michigan don t accept Wisconsin Medicaid, limited access to school counselors) made this focus area especially important. 19

20 Nutrition & Healthy Foods Florence High School 2011 YRBS Percentage of students in grades Eating habits 82.1% of Florence County students reported drinking 100% fruit juices one or more times during the past seven days. 43.0% of Florence County students reported eating fruit one or more times per day over the past seven days. 71.5% of Florence County students reported eating a green salad one or more times during the past seven days. 70.9% of Florence County students reported eating carrots one or more times during the past seven days. 90.7% of Florence County students reported eating other vegetables one or more times during the past seven days. Diabetes rates in Florence County are slightly below state average, however diabetes as primary cause of death is slightly higher than the state and region. See chart below. 20

21 Oral Health In , 53% of Wisconsin third grade children with cavities Wisconsin third-grade children had cavities. Northwoods Dental Project has been working to prevent tooth decay and create awareness of oral health since it was formed in March 2007 by Oneida and Vilas County Health Departments. NDP expanded the partnership in 2009 and 2011 to include Forest and Florence County Health Departments. NDP s dental staff provide free preventive dental services to any family who wants to participate. Northwoods Dental Project relies on funding from community members, area foundations and organizations, various grants and the ability to bill Medicaid for sustainability of its programs. Services are provided using portable dental equipment and supplies.

30 Community Health Assessment FCHD Community Health Priorities Priority One: Alcohol and other Drug Abuse Priority Two: Mental health awareness and suicide prevention After reviewing data, group members were asked to rank their top three concerns. Results were calculated using a weighted scale. Twenty ballots were submitted; three ballots were invalid. Alcohol and Drug use was a clear concern and Mental Health was determined to be a second important area. Many areas were ranked lower because participants felt there were already resources in place, for example: Oral Health: Northwoods Dental Coalition and Fluoride supplement program through the health department. Tobacco Use & Exposure: Statewide smoking laws, local ordinances in place, Wisconsin WINS compliance checks, Northwoods Tobacco Free Coalition. The health department will continue past initiatives in all the focus areas, but the Community Health Improvement Plan will center around the top two concerns identified by the partners.
